A Year on a Dairy Farm

Be the first to review this product

New House Farm is a small dairy farm of 140 acres in Tytherington, Gloucestershire. Run by Bill Cornock and his sons, Richard and Tom, it has been in the family since the 1840s. In a beautiful and diverse collection of photographs, 'A Year on a Dairy Farm' faithfully captures the day-to-day workings of a family-run farm in the South Gloucestershire countryside. Milking and calving cows, planting tress, laying hedges, ploughing fields, planting maize, making hay, picking fruit - these are just some of the sundry activities that make up the farming year. 'A Year on a Dairy Farm' is a very personal book - all the photographs were taken by the author as he worked on his land - but one with broad appeal, documenting with affection and good humor the rhythms and experiences of farming throughout the changing seasons. Revealing the characters that make it all happen, and the animals that are the farm's lifeblood, it illustrates with color and vitality the hard work and rewards of an honest vocation practiced in the midst of nature's beauty.More and more small farms are vanishing from our countryside. Falling milk prices and lack of EU action has forced many diary farmers to sell up, unable to compete with the huge herds of cows bred for maximum milk yield and farmed on an industrial scale or with cheaper imported milk from elsewhere. This is rare and precious insight into a vanishing way of life that may, all too soon, be gone forever.
